Çamlıca Hill (Turkish: Çamlıca Tepesi), aka Big Çamlıca Hill (Turkish: Büyük Çamlıca Tepesi) to differentiate from the nearby Little Çamlıca Hill (Turkish: Küçük Çamlıca Tepesi), is a hill in Üsküdar district of Istanbul, Turkey. Situated on the Asian part of the city at 268 m (879 ft) above sea level, Çamlıca Hill has a panoramic view of the southern part of Bosphorus and the mouth of Golden Horn.[1][2]

Public park on Çamlıca Hill.

The hill is a popular visitor attraction. There is historical-designed teahouses, cafes and a restaurant inside a public park with monumental trees, flower gardens and fountains, run by the Metropolitan Municipality.[2]

A television and several radio masts and towers stand atop the hill.[1] To remove the visual pollution caused by the masts, the construction of a 365.5 m (1,199 ft)-high television tower with a revolving restaurant at 202.5 m (664 ft) and two observation decks has been projected by the Ministry of Transport, Maritime and Communication in October 2014.[3][4]
